WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 16, 1957

Serious Situation It [a probable that each and every member Of the Studenl body realizes and is concerned over a very serious situation which lias arisen on our campus. The nature of the situation is not new or different in that it has not arisen before on this and other campuses, not la it one which la limited to the college environment. However, each Incident which contributes to the over-all situation Increases the gravity of the problem, and the person or persons involved must be dealt with severely. As was pointed out in the general student body meeting of last week, the responsibility of dealing with this problem is not in the hands of one or a few members of our student body. The members of our Student Council, who were elected by the Btudenl body and vested with the authority of governing and regulating student life here at Longwood. could not be expected to single-handedly control a situation such as this which affects indirectly a vast majority of the students on campus. It should be kept in mind that this is a delicate situation which requires the attention and coop' ration of every member of the student body. The responsibility for this type of problem was assumed by each and every member <>! the student body when she entered Longwood and voluntarily pledged her name to support and abide by the Honor Code which exists here. All problems which arise under the provisions of these simple bal significant words mutt be met, at least in part, by the students themselves apart from the Student Council. One of the greatest ways which students could carry OUt this responsibility is to report immediately and accurately any incidents or facts which may have bearing on the problem at band to these in authority. In seme caaea definite action may be taken in controlling situation only Immediately after It has occurred, In which cases facta must be clear and accurate.

There are many other ways in which the individual student may assume part of the responsibility of this problem. There are ways in which individual students may lessen or even eliminate the possibility of these "incidents" occurring at all, since the actual responsibility of persona! property ia of individual concern. However, when when this gets "out of hand" the council uses the power with which it is vested to explore the situation. There is one way in particular in which students, perhaps without realizing it, antagonize and contribute to the severity of this and many other types of problems, this phase being the most difficult to control or cope with. Whenever something large, serious, or otherwise impressive arises among a large group of students, there la an overwhelming tendency to discuss, exaggerate, distort and even improvise the facts concerning the situation. The circulating of rumors, distorted facts, and exaggerated details can easily create an atmosphere of tension, fear, and in many cases panic which often turns out to be nfore serious than the problem involved. There are actually few students who are not guilty of touching up or adding to the facts at one time or another on campus, but the seriousness of this tendency on a large scale in a problem such as the one at hand must be felt and checked by each student in order to keep emotional involvement under control. There is in reality no way of foreseeing how long such a situation may prevail on our campus. It is the desire of the Student Council, the students at large, the Administration, the Faculty, and all others involved in student life at Longwood that something may be done in the near future to put this situation and the problems connected with it behind us for good. Meanwhile, it is hoped that students will cooperate and assist by asauming a personal responsibility towards its elimination.

Inside Improvements Returning to school after the past holi- which has two large hangers, takes on | day, students were soon aware of the improvementa which are being made in our dining room. At the present time the painting of the walls and tables lias been completed. The chairs will also be sprayed a

Every window will have soft green curtain- Most of the new china, a Rombay pattern Of Syracuse china, has now arrived and will be in use when the new dishwashing machine la installed. According to the tea in charge of dining room improvements, these plans will be completed

before Pound) ra' Day. The Administration la clearly doing its part in improving our dining room At the present time, it appears that we students are not sharing our own responsibility in keeping our dining room and its entrance a very neat place. Before each meal, coats and books may be found cluttering the Rotunda The entrance to the dining room.

very untidy look also. Inside the dining room are five long hangers. Therefore, it is unnecessary for students to simply throw their coats in any convenient place around them. Students are given the privilege of smoking at the dining room entrance. The cigarette butts which are usually scattered about the floor after each meal show much unconcern on the students' behalf for the appearance of our school. Unless smokers become more aware of proper disposal of cigarette butts, they will be asked to smoke down in the snack instead. This place is a passageway. After the bells ring for meals, students should not continue standing there; but should move so students may enter the dining room without feeling they are at a cashmere sweater sale. Lets try to do our part. The administration is doing theirs. E. C.

Peanuts, Milk Cure Advised For Anything But Insomnia

From Cornet A friend of mine, having heard that I am sometimes troubled with Insomnia, suggested the following plan: "Eat a pint of peanuts, and drink two or three glasses of milk Just before retiring. You'll be asleep in no time." I did so and my friend was right I soon fell asleep. Then a man with his head under his arm came along and asked me If I wanted to buy his feet. As we were dickering, the dragon on which I was riding dipped out of his skin and left me floating In mid-air.
